Osechi Feast @ New Year’s Eve

After he left for tennis practice around 1pm, I started working on plating and table setting for New Year’s Eve feast. Most people in Japan eat osechi, specially prepared only for new year on New Year’s Day. However, our family tradition is to start enjoying on December 31.


Sake from my home prefecture, Mt. Fuji plates, cups & carafe


Filling wooden bento box with osechi for later


伊達巻 (Datemaki), なます (Namasu), 黒豆 (Kuromame), 栗金団 (Kuri Kinton), かまぼこ (Kamaboko)


八幡巻 (Yahatamaki), 煮しめ (Nishime), 有頭海老 (Yuto Ebi)


I prepared individual plates for tonight and we started the feast around 4pm.


Another tradition of us is to have KFC on New Year’s Eve.


I love this sake cup with Mt. Fuji inside.


My husband don’t like traditional Japanese food much, but enjoyed most of it tonight. My hard work paid off.


My second round: 松前漬 (Matsumaezuke), 鰊漬け (Nishizuke) & more sake


Around 9pm: 年越そば (Toshikoshi Soba) & more sake

We kept eating and taking easy till midnight. After hearing the new year fireworks, we went to bed.
